Headscratchers / Kamen Rider Ex-Aid

Go To

  • Why did Emu give his Gashat to Taiga when he never actually AGREED to the challenge?
    • Technically, Taiga took it from him.
    • But he DID agree, if only after transforming into Ex-Aid and switching to his confident genius gamer persona.
  • Why does the hospital have such lax security? In the first three episodes alone, two child patients have run out of the main entrance on their own, and none of the guards on duty batted an eye.
    • It's a hospital, not a prison. Hospitals in real life (at least in the US) don't have very high security either.
  • Why does nobody care that Taiga has his illegal practice only a few blocks away from the hospital?
    • Likely because they know that if they do try to send the police, he'll just transform and likely hurt people.
      • But he only got his driver and gashat during the early episode, and his clinic seemed to already run for five years or so.
    • Advertisement:
    • It's not known that if his illegal clinic is only a few blocks away or that anyone of the CR is aware of its location prior to the series.
  • Why is it that Brave gets the Gashat for the game that Asuna is from and not Ex-Aid?
    • While Asuna/Poppy tends to assist Emu more, she is technically the navigator for all the C.R. Riders. Hiro's as entitled to Beat as much as Emu is.
    • Also, he was a rider before Emu was.
  • So do the Riders automatically have a demorph option when they hit the red? Because most of the time, when they do get hit with an attack, the end up demorphing like they do in most other times, as seen in Episode 5. If so, wouldn't that undermine the Game Over thing if they automatically demorph?
    • My best guess is that the transformation cancelling is due to some predictive algorithms in the Driver that determine when enough is enough, though I think perhaps the user can override it. However. If by some circumstance, when the killing blow is struck, if the Rider is still transformed and their gauge is low enough, they will die.
    • Gashats have an automatic ejection system when the Rider is in critical health. Genm Zombie Gamer however, has a device called "Deadling Jammer" (see Point 6), which is located in the white part of his helmet-hair, which disables the auto ejection system.
      • Which caused even more confusion. In Episode 13, Genm knocked Brave and Snipe out of their transformation while still in Dangerous Zombie form, and there was no sign of his Deadling Jammer being damaged or disabled before the battle. Same for Ex-Aid in episode 14. And no, he didn't turn it off for mercy, he clearly wanted to kill them.
      • Possible the Riders managed to remove them as they rolled around.
      • Also, when Gemn killed Kiriya, Kiriya was already heavily damaged from a Too Dumb to Live moment. The other riders took damage normally. Odds are that if Kiriya had taken damage the normal way, if it wasn't for the Deadling Jammer, odds are that Kiriya would've demorphed.
  • So twice now, a known bad guy has said to a Rider, "here, have a Gashat!" and the Rider has said "seems totally legit!" and used it straight away, not the least bit concerned. Why are these guys Too Dumb to Live?
      Advertisement:
    • Honestly, in Kiriya's case, there was no real reason he could expect a bugged Gashat, thus no reason not to use Dangerous Zombie himself. As far as he could see, if he didn't play along to snatch it, Genm would have very easily just popped it himself and fought him. The only negative affect seen so far in this series from a Gashat is "going a little berserk", and that honestly wouldn't have been a negative to him in that situation. Probably could have figured that using Dangerous Zombie would have kept Genm from trying to easily snatch it from him during a fight. In Emu's case, it's very clear Pallad wanted exactly what happened, and not to try and screw him over. Enigmatic Minion is in effect here for his motives.
  • What is with the Poor Communication Kills involving Hiiro and Taiga not telling Emu that he has the Game Sickness? Taiga says that telling him would only make things worse, but just randomly attacking him out of the blue isn't helping either. Plus, if either do succeed in separating and eliminating the Bugster from Emu, which has been in him long enough that it likely poses little, if any threat, he'll likely lose his ability to transform, when he's right now their best chance at taking on and stopping Genm and Para-DX.
    • Emu is the Patient Zero of the Bugster and such, they probably the virus in his body is more dangerous and since Emu survive for so long with the virus inside his body, they probably believes it's dormant and taking it out as soon as possible is better. Also, Taiga and Hiiro are doctors, asshole as they may be. They probably don't want anything bad to happen to Emu. And with the debut of both of their Level 50 forms this month, the baggage isn't so heavy on Emu anymore.
    • Advertisement:
    • Judging from Emu's reaction when he WAS told that he has the Game Sickness, their not telling him was pretty justified.
  • If Kuroto is doing all of this for his own ego and god complex, why not simply patent the gashat and driver technology and make a wrestling league out of it. People would pay out the nose to see real life superheroes fight real life monsters and if Kuroto felt like it he could become a Vince McMahon figure and be as much of an ass as he wanted without getting into legal trouble.
    • Well, apart from the immunization process required to make the thing function, that's kind of what he plans on doing with his Kamen Rider Chronicles game.
      • Turns out that Kuroto had something else in mind for Kamen Rider Chronicle - namely, bringing back the dead.
  • Related to the issue of Taiga and Hiiro's handling of Emu having game disease, why do neither actually follow the procedure's protocol in the slightest? In the second episode, Poppy makes a distinct point that to separate the Bugster, one must first use Lv 1 before you can safely battle it in Lv 2. They constantly attack Emu in Lv 2 and higher forms even though there's been no separation of any Bugster. In Hiiro's case, this is especially problematic as it did nothing but make him look as if he was just randomly turning on Emu for the hell of it, which did nothing but reasonably make Emu's opinion of him tank.
    • Lv 1 is needed to do the initial destruction, not solely to summon the Bugster. Lv 2 can 'force' the Bugster into leaving Emu to defend itself, at which point they level down to fight proper.
  • How did Kuroto Dan not know Poppy was the DoReMiFa Beat Bugster or that Graphite was the Dragon Knight Hunter Z Bugster?
    • As far as Dan knew, Poppy was too loyal to CR and Graphite was already long gone, so he was probably looking to spawn brand new Bugsters from those games, and having a meltdown when it wasn't working.
    • Maybe he didn´t want to attack Poppy because she is the Bugster created by his mother save data.
  • What was CERO thinking rating Kamen Rider Chronicle A?
    • Maybe they market it as a Massive Multiplayer Fighting Fantasy Game for the entire family?
  • Why does Parado seem so certain that Kamen Rider Chronicle will allow the Bugsters to eradicate humanity? There are like... 2 problems with that plan. 1) As the Bugsters as a whole are supposed to be fair-play villains, then that means there is a chance that a player can and will beat them all and actually win the game. 2) Not EVERYONE is gonna join in the game. Sure games are popular and a lot of people play but not everyone in the world is gonna play. Plus they've only got one of each Bugster Boss. Good luck trying to get the entire world with that few numbers. Actually for that matter, does he even realize that not all games are exported worldwide, or the logistics issues with that?
    • A player beating them isn't a problem, since Salty says that beating a Bugster just respawns them at a higher level. It's easy to kill civilians during game time and claim it was due to collateral damage, especially if Revol and Vernier are involved, since a lot of their attacks are explosive in nature. As for the export issue, Bugsters can travel through computers just fine, and if they were seen, there'd probably be lots of black-market orders for KRC gashats, or hell, they could just randomly drop them in game stores like Ren did, with no other marketing aside from Poppy's apparent idol power.
      • By that logic, they must think people are dumb. Seriously, how long before someone figures out Kamen Rider Chronicles literally kills players? Nobody would play after that.
      • The previous players have no choice BUT to play, as they're ticking time bombs that would die if they don't kill a Bugster, due to infection. Upcoming episode blurbs also say that Ren hooks a bunch of new players by saying that someone who completes the game would be recognized world wide as a hero, and that beating KRC would bring back everyone that disappeared. Besides, smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol kill people too, but that doesn't stop anyone from drinking or smoking, does it? Who could ever pass up the ultimate fantasy of being a superhero recognized by the whole world as the savior who not only defeated the Bugster menace, but also brought back the people that succumbed to it?
  • Come to think of it, doesn't Kamen Rider Chronicle's system seem...odd, namely cause it seems a bit like an unfair game. Players get basic equipment, no real info of how to level up, and to power up they need to steal equipment from the Doctors. Even for a game where the goal was the Bugsters winning, it seems awful...unlike Pallad to make the game so heavily skewed to the Bugsters' advantage. Doesn't seem like it uses a party system either for that matter.
    • Humanity does have superior numbers, and stronger Hero characters on their side. Besides, to the Bugster protagonists, it wouldn't exactly be fair if the mooks in their humanity musou not only outnumbered them immensely and attacked en mass, but also had Boss stats and super-effective weapons.
      • But then consider how someone pointed out Salty says defeated Bugsters just level up, then my point still stands. For a fair game, it means both sides have a good chance of winning. I'm still not seeing how they expect humanity to have a fighting chance, and even that Musou style falls flat when you notice none of the players are working together or anything.
      • Even the Hero part falls flat, when all Players will start attacking them on sight for power-ups. A little hard to focus on the enemy hero when your own 'troops' are attacking you.
      • Smarter players are shown organizing groups and swarming Bugster bosses, plus they left the Riders alone when the bosses kicked their asses. Besides, did you honestly think all that fair play crap Parad was spouting to be true, when he blatantly overpowers low level players, deliberately withheld Poppy and Graphite from Dan, and goaded Emu into creating a then overpowered Gashat to upset the game balance? Seems like his "fair-play" is all a sham just to prolong his playtime.
  • Why does Ex-Aid seem to have forgotten his bike? I know Kamen Rider isn't as big on bikes as it was in the beginning, but when you need to chase a BIKE-THEMED MONSTER, you'd think letting this be one of the five times this year you pull yours out would just make sense.
    • Rule of Funny, the fact that Kiriya's rider form is nothing more than a shell now, a common problem that the Neo-Heisei Riders don't use their bikes that often. Take your pick of the three.
  • If Parado is "M", then how was he able to fight against Mighty Brothers in Episode 16? Wouldn't he have vanished?
    • It could be that Mighty Brothers never really split Emu into two separate bodies- it actually gave Parado a second body to control.
    • Note that even when Parad is already around, Emu still changes pronouns from 'boku' to 'ore' and acts more confident, so it could be that Emu might actually have developed a 'third' personality, a bridge between Parado and Emu, one that is focused on games, but still cares about people.
    • It's possible that some remnant of Parado was left inside Emu after their surgical seperation pre-series, giving Emu the M personality and skills, and the orange Mighty Brother, independent of Parado being around. When Parado forcibly possessed Emu's body, he subsumed this remnant- from this point on, the M persona (including the orange Brother) is fully dependant on Parado, and disappears entirely when Emu reprograms Parado.
  • How did Hiiro get the Bakusou Bike gashatrophy/game clear mark?
    • If you recall, there was a Ride-Player in the area where Motos Bugster was. Hiiro could have easily weakened Motos, gave the Ride-Player his weapon, allow him to finish him off, and ask for the gashatrophy. It's a big stretch, but it's a theory.
  • Cronus wants to erase Parado so Emu can't transform anymore. So... why doesn't he just use the Kamen Rider Chronicle Master Gashat to do that, like he did with Salty? Parado's and Graphite's data should be within the Gashat, since they're featured in the selection screen.
    • Salty was an Imperfect Bugster, Parado and Graphite are both Perfect Bugsters, so it's entirely possible they're protected because of that.
  • Dan Kuroto ran away from cops once it's found out he was responsible for the virus. Yet, Dan Masamune is allowed to stay as CEO, even planning to sell Kamen Rider Chronicle world wide and the cops are doing nothing.
    • Masamune is technically speaking legally clear of anything that happened prior to his release from prison, as Kuroto and Parado did everything up until then. After that, while the Doctors know who he is, he's keeping his identity as Cronus (remember, he passed off Cronus as an NPC) and true motivations hidden from the general public and his workers, and even the Riders weren't let in on Cronus's actual motivations. The one one he really shared his Evil Plan with was Kiriya, who has a reputation for dishonesty at this point. As far as anyone but the Riders knew, Masamune was just a CEO trying to do damage control. Compare this to Kuroto who exposed his identity as Genm in front of witnesses and just tried to murder a child in cold blood. Masamune's done a much better job of being a Villain with Good Publicity than his son.
  • Is there a point of Kiriya's fight with Kuroto in #42? He could have just injected him with the virus instead of beating him. Is he just doing it out of spite?
    • The fight is meant to stress them out.
    • I think he definitely also do it out of spite. He still has a grudge towards Kuroto, this is obvious because he then handed Kuroto to the Ministry officials afterwards and took the Doctor Mighty XX Gashat to deliver it by himself like he's the hero instead of with Kuroto. All that even after Kuroto voluntarily healed him at the end of the fight.
      • There's proof he's doing it out of spite : He fought and killed Kuroto several times before handing the empty gashat (which supposed to create the vaccine). He also pointlessly ramming him with bike one last time even after Kuroto shown some immunity.
  • Who is the main secondary rider in this series? Is there even any? It seemed everyone had a fair share of their own story. I'd even say it was Parado but it was really late in the series.
    • Hiiro as Kamen Rider Brave is the secondary rider. The story's ability to give decent focus to each member of its cast doesn't negate that. However, if we're going by their relevance to the plot, Kuroto is the deuteragonist and Parado is the tritagonist.
  • Why was Kiriya never used the doctor's white labcoat before #42? Even Taiga always used one. Isn't there some sort of dresscode?
    • He was not officially a CR doctor until that episode.
  • Are bugsters physically ageless and immortal (unless being killed)? This lead to unfortunate implications.
    • Even if Saki revived as bugster, she would either outlive Hiiro or being killed. The same also apply to other victims.
    • Parado, Poppy, Kiriya, and Kuroto would outlive other riders. Unless there were some connection between Parado and Emu, will Parado die if Emu dies?
      • Assuming that Emu's game disease isn't more different from others' than has already been established, it can be assumed that if Emu dies of something other than game disease like Kiriya's friend did, Parado would also die, but if Emu died of game disease, Parado would be completed like other victims' Bugsters.
      • Parado seemed to be independent from Emu since he tried to kill him once.
  • I probably missed it in the series... why would it need five years from the zero day for the story to starts? What happened during the time period in between? Did Parado and Graphite just goofing around? Did Genm spent five years making Kamen Rider Chronicles?
    • He did, but it seems to be the Gashats that took all that time to make, as several of the original 10 are only completed during the opening story arc. Yes, the prototypes existed, but they were clearly extremely flawed to the point of causing at least one fatality. While once the final versions exist it's shown to not take that long to make them, but the process of making a final version that doesn't have potentially fatal results seems to be where most of those five years to happen.
  • CMIIW, being an intern is a really busy work. How did Emu managed to find time to play games? How did he manage to do both internship and being CR doctor? Artistic license - internship - trope?
    • It probably worked early on. Remember, he started off the series in the pediatrician ward (primarily focused on children's health) so he probably used playing games as a way to levitate stress from the patients. It is also possible that when the plot continued, he had less time playing games. And to answer the whole internship, well Haima and Hinata both work in the hospital as well as the CR, so it's possible they told the hospital about Emu's involvement as a Kamen Rider, and maybe add it as part of his internship. After all, he is helping patients right?
  • How did the doctors becomes skilled Kamen Rider? It bothers me. Taiga could be chalked up to experience, Hiiro might had training for years in America (since he already owned the gamer driver), and Kuroto is the creator, he must have tested it extensively. But how about the others?
    • Emu (and by extension, Nico) : Just because you did well in video games doesn't mean you will do well in real life. Being genius in gaming shouldn't automatically make them genius in real life fighting as well, even if it was a game-based fighting....
      • The simple solution for Emu is his M personality is in the driver's seat when he's transformed and said personality is, in some capacity, Parado, who is not only an excellent fighter but a sapient video game character who's likely programmed to know how to. By the time we see Emu as Emu fighting, it's a significant time into the series and he's conscious while M is in control most of the time, meaning he probably picked it up from him. As for Nico, she's wanted to see M beaten up for a long time and only recently pulled Taiga into it, so it's possible she learned to fight along the way.
    • Kiriya : How does a coroner knows how to fight? And he's pretty good at it, too.
      • Kiriya desired to track down the origin of the Bugster Virus and seemed fully aware of what that would entail, and the fact he can fight without his suit implies he just legitimately got some form of training before becoming Lazer.
    • And Poppy too. Sure, she's a Bugster, but isn't she supposed to be a non-combat Bugster?
      • Poppy clearly knows better how to fight while brainwashed than as herself, and generally has a partner when fighting afterwards, which implies part of it was her reprogramming. It's also possible that Kuroto programmed her with some self defense capabilities for her own protection.
    • I wouldn't call those professional fights per se... Also the VR simulation glasses used in the webisode series seems to be canon, so they could've gotten virtual training from it. Poppy could've tried it for fun and for testing.
  • Is Kamen Sentai Gorider canon? Does that mean Kamen Rider Blade took place in the same universe?
    • It is canon - however, Blade doesn't take place in the same universe, since if it did, it would mean that Gaim and Agito also take place in the same universe (Agito is the only 1 of the 4 that could take place in the same universe as any of the other 3 shows involved in Gorider, since the ending wouldn't contradict any of those shows - after all, at the end of Agito, the Overlord of Darkness decided to postpone his plans of wiping humanity out to see if they were worthy of existing; it's entirely possible he decided to give humanity a century or two to prove themselves); however, it's explicitly stated that Gorider takes place in a different dimension from those shows, so Kazuma likely arrived in a similar method as the other riders.
  • How does all other doctors forget that level 1 is needed to separate the host and the bugster during the final battle?
    • They kinda forget it in the heat of the moment? I think even Emu only reminded of it after Poppy's death. He's probably reminiscing his past with her and then remembered what she said to him. Interestingly, it was Genm who was the first to understand what Emu's doing, and he wasn't even a doctor.
      • They probably figured that Kuroto wouldn't make the Final Boss of Kamen Rider Chronicle have such a Weaksauce Weakness before Emu tried it out. Either Kuroto included it on accident, or he figured that whoever did challenge Gamedeus would be using Cronus instead of one of the regular Rider gashats - and Cronus doesn't exactly have a LV 1 form.
    • Related to the above, how can the doctors separate Masamune and Gamedeus anyway? There was a game over sounds when Masamune injected Gamedeus into himself, so I originally thought Masamune had already dead anyway and the result is a permanent fusion between him and Gamedeus, as a bugster. If the operation is successful in separating Masamune and his bugster, which got killed later, wouldn't it resulted in him unable to transform anymore, just like Emu? Just what is Masamune at this point anyway? If he's a bugster, can't they trapped him like Kuroto?
      • Masamune can be seen as an Imperfect Bugster due to him being the bugster for all patients other than Emu (who Parad is the bugster of) - he didn't so much perfectly fuse with Gamedeus, but rather, he assimilated Gamedeus. As for him being able to transform, while it's never revealed who or what Masamune's bugster was, it wasn't Gamedeus.
  • This seemed like deus ex machina that comes out of nowhere. Just how did Poppy know that injecting the Doctor Mighty XX gashat into herself would turn her into a vaccine rain that healed everyone? Even after rewatching it with subs they don't explain what actually happened or why it happened that way.
    • Given Parado used the same Gashat but was just filled with the antibodies, it seems more likely that dispersing herself was something Poppy did of her own accord to disperse the antibodies, not a result of it. Given the Bugsters are basically just walking masses of Bugster Virus and can 'disperse' themselves for fast travel, it seems that Poppy just went a step further and completely tore herself into her component viruses to spread the vaccine, destroying herself both from the antibody and from scattering her body so thin. IE, it wasn't injecting herself with the antibody that turned her into a vaccine rain, it was Poppy who turned herself into it after injecting herself with the antibody.
  • Where is the director, Hiiro's father during episode #44? What is he doing during such critical situation?
  • How did the CR still gained Tokimeki Crisis gashatrophy after the reset?
    • The reset doesn't necessary goes all the way to Cronus's debut where the Tokimeki Crisis gashatrophy would've been gained when the Lovelica Bugster was killed.
    • The problem is, Tokimeki's Crisis gashatropy is given by Cronus, one episode right before the reset happened.
      • Gashatrophies Cronus gave away willingly or were earned the traditional way aren't affected by the reset. If the doctors had forcibly taken the Tokimeki Crisis Gashatrophy from Cronus, odds are that it would've been taken away by the reset.
  • CMIIW, perfect bugsters can be revived at any time, unless they are killed during pause. What is the point of Masamune wanting Hiiro and Emu to kill Parado? He could just be revived afterwards by Graphite. If he was really wanted to off Parado, he should do it himself using pause. Though Kuroto seemed to think Parado's death would be permanent.
    • If that was true why did everyone acted like Graphite's death and Poppy's sacrifice would be permanent if they can be revived at anytime?
    • If I recall from Episode 41 Johnny Maxima is in possession of the Bugvisor now, which was used by Parado and attempted by Graphite to revive perfect Bugsters. The fact that he hasn't shown up in recent episodes until True Ending means they have no means of reviving them just yet.
      • Probably because Masamune figured that if he did kill Parad but Emu found some way to revive Parad, Parad would be more than happy to team up with Emu to get revenge; if Emu was the one who did the deed, even if Emu somehow revived Parad, Parad would be very hesitant at the bare minimum to team up with Emu. The main mistake Masamune made was assuming that Emu wasn't willing to help Parad make amends - odds are that if he had known Emu would be willing to do that, he would've insisted Emu do something else (i.e., hand over his driver).
  • It seemed like an ass pull, how did Emu managed to move somehow during pause? Plot armor for being a protagonist? Handwaved because he was the same as Masamune, being a patient zero? That's like copy and paste straight away from Jojo.
    • We've seen that strong Bugster Virus strains can let you move during Pause with Graphite and Gamedeus' virus, so between that and Emu's eyes glowing red right afterwards, it's likely that his strain had grown to the point of giving him the same power.
      • Should be noted that he froze up again afterwards, even if it was just for a second.
      • It should also be noted that Emu is revealed to have been reinfected with Parado, who injected himself with Gamedeus's antivirus, which was made from Gamedeus's own virus, so that might have had something to do with.
  • If going by what happened to Kiriya and Kuroto, if they are able to revive everyone that were victims of the Game Disease, won't they still be Bugsters like them? With everything the populace been through with the Bugsters, do you think the populace will be really accept of that fact?
    • Yes, they would be bugsters. It's probably one of the reason they chose not to revive the victims by having Masamune pulling a suicide. Think of all the unfortunate implications, it will feel more like downer ending.
    • But it sounded like Emu wanted to save everyone that were victims of the Game Disease whose data is still stored in the proto gashats. Did he not think of that problem or he figures there is a way to make them full human again?
      • Emu didn't seem to think that bugsters are any different than humans, going by his speech (and reminiscing both Poppy and Parado).
    • This question addressed in Another Ending. Apparently they managed to find a way to return them to human.
  • Why are Emu's parents never in picture when he remembers his childhood, not even when he is in hospital? This may be perfectly justifiable by them being busy (as it would be expectable even in different countries than Japan), but it still leaves open the question whether Emu was a Free-Range Child.
    • This accounts for Nico's parents, too. Why is no one questioning seemingly underage girl moving around on her own? Yes, she is a legal adult by the main story's start, but it would still seem reasonable to at least bring up the possibility of calling her parents when she is in CR with Game Disease for the first time.
      • Nico isn't even a legal adult until True Ending movie. The end of the series shows she JUST passed high school at the end of the series. So yeah, the fact that her parents don't seem to be concerned with her actions at all is questionable.
    • I think it's pretty much implied Emu was a lonely child wishing for a friend to play with. Him being mostly left alone by his parents would make sense in this case. Though, plot wise, they simply haven't appeared because they aren't relevant to the story.
    • Apparently this was answered in the novel. Emu's mother died in the childbirth, while his dad was a busy person who moves a lot.
  • Why isn't Genm Corp temporarily closed down for investigation after Kuroto's actions were made known? One of the ministry of health's agent even stated his crimes were considered as bioterrorism.
    • It's heavily implied that Kuroto was acting on his own. If his actions were linked to the entire company, that probably would've gotten it shut down, but since it was relatively isolated (the games were developed by Kuroto's employees, but the majority of the work was Kuroto's), shutting down the company (And costing the employees their jobs) would be overkill.
  • It seems quite a few people perished in the Zero Day event and yet only 4 Bugsters achieved completion with only 3 of that were actually through normal infection means, where are the rest? Surely Parado would've recruited them since he's truly concerned for his kin.
    • Easy explanation: The bugsters come from certain; at the time Zero Day happened, there weren't as many as there are at the time Ex-Aid starts, so logically speaking, either the bugsters that achieved completion infected multiple people, or the people who perished during Zero Day were infected, but died from something else before the bugster could become complete.
  • Barring eccentric like Johnny Maxima, what sane government would allow import of Kamen Rider Chronicle now that its deadly effects have been made public? Why would Masamune be confident that he could get it exported across the world?
  • Since Lovelica represents Toki Meki Crisis, why could Emu clear Poppy's game using dating sim style play instead of music game style play since she's still representing DoReMiFa Beat in Kamen Rider Chronicle?
  • Speaking of which, shouldn't Cronus attack on Lovelica be ineffective since he can only be defeated by Dating Sim style play?
    • CMIIW, Emu reprogrammed Lovelica so he can be attacked by normal means.
      • Think of it this way: Emu is a normal player who would have to defeat Loverica the traditional way after reprogramming him (and even then, Loverica would just come back). Cronus is a player who has discovered console commands, and changed Loverica's status from Essential to Nonessential, and then deleted his file from the game data.
  • Has Parado ever thought about what he will do after he kills Emu? Emu's existence is the reason for his existence. If he killed him, that should be the end of both of them.
    • It seemed the implication is Parado more similar to a complete bugster and independent enough to survive on his own, even if his host were killed. This is probably because he was manually extracted from Emu.
  • How exactly is destroying Pallad supposed to rob Emu of his ability to transform? Use of the rider tech in Ex-Aid is supposed to hinge on the user being immune to game disease, not having it. And given that Emu has had it for the same amount of time as Masamune, wouldn't that mean that he would have built up the same resistance to it as Masamune? Why would losing Pallad have any effect on Emu's ability to transform?
    • Masamune was referring specifically to Muteki Gamer. Emu by himself cannot handle Hyper Muteki's infinite invincibility, which was why he had to get Parado back into him and regain the power of Genius Gamer M. It didn't stop Emu from using his other gashats.
    • I distinctly remember it being stated by Kuroto, and possibly Masamune as well, that should Pallad be destroyed, Emu would lose his ability to transform ALTOGETHER, not just Hyper Muteki, which makes no sense given how the rider tech of this series works. The only thing destroying Pallad would do is cure Emu of his game disease, and I may not be a medical expert, but I'm pretty sure you don't LOSE immunity to a disease by being cured of it. We can see clearly that Emu's extended amount of time with game disease has resulted in immunity to it, as evidenced by him never needing the compatibility surgery (which, by my understanding, is basically a game disease vaccine), and that he didn't end up bedridden the first time he transformed like Nico. And he's had game disease in his system for the same amount of time as Masamune, a man whose built up so much immunity that he's able casually use a device virally potent enough to KILL an un-immunized human INSTANTLY. I guess you could chock it up to Kuroto and Masamune being a game designer and a businessman respectively, not doctors, so maybe they don't really know how immunity works, but all in all, this plot device doesn't seem to have been handled well.
  • In True Ending, what is Emu actually doing during Madoka's operation? I get it he was saying things to calm Madoka, but why he needed to use Proto Mighty Action X?
    • He used Level 0's ability to suppress Bugster Virus strain she was infected with.
  • In Another Ending, is Saki unable to be revived anymore, unlike other victims? It isn't explained how Kuroto revived her only for a limited time amount, though one could assume he makes some changes to the code.
